It’s time for that annual, local hello to spring — FestForAll.
With all kinds of music, art and entertainment for the kids, it is designed to be a festival for everyone. Running the weekend before Easter, and well ahead of the Baton Rouge Blues Fest and New Orleans Jazz Fest, the free, weekend-long event is the perfect time to soak up some spring.
Listen to some blues, jazz, bluegrass, Cajun, country, Americana, rock music and more at Town Square. Peruse the paintings, jewelry, woodwork, stained glass and other art in the Artists’ Village. Take the kids to have their faces painted and play in a Bounce House, or watch a martial arts demonstration or dancers in the Children’s Village.
If you’ve worked up a thirst or are hungry, there will be plenty of beverage and food vendors.
